Coodes Solicitors, which has seven offices in Cornwall and Devon, has reported a 15% increase in its residential conveyancing business.

The increase contrasts with national figures that highlight a 3% decrease in house sales from February 2012 to February 2013.

As a result of its success, Coodes has expanded its team by recruiting legal executive, Maria Richards.

Richards, who has previously worked for Cornwall College and Stephens Scown, will be based in the firm’s St Austell office.
